VIU Convocation Ceremonies Coming Back to Campus!

We are excited to announce that Vancouver Island University is moving forward with plans to return to in-person Convocation ceremonies in June 2022, and for the first time in more than 20 years, we will be bringing these celebrations back to campus!  Convocation ceremonies will take place in the gymnasium at our Nanaimo campus, on June 23 and 24. 

This transition will allow us to continue our traditions and enhance our joyful events focused on celebrating the tremendous achievements of our graduating students. 

VIU will continue to follow all advice from our Provincial Health Office to ensure the celebration is safe for all graduates and their supporters. 

Planning is well underway, and further details will be posted on these webpages as they become available.
